SADGATI - Satyajit Ray RARE Doordarshan Hindi Movie

(Deliverance) where Om Puri made his debut and Smita Patil acted as his wife is based on a short story by Munshi Premchand which can honestly make a stone cry with its bitter realism. Movie was shown only once on Doordarshan back in 1980s.

An untouchable Dukhi (an out-caste, played by Om Puri) approaches the village Brahmin to request him to set an auspicious date for his daughter's upcoming wedding according to the Hindu astrology. The Brahmin promises to perform the task in exchange of Dukhi slaving over household chores in return.

Already ailing and weak due to a recent fever, Dukhi agrees and begins with cleaning the Brahman's house and stable. When he is asked to chop a huge block of wood, Dukhi’s anger increases with each blow. Working in scorching sun, hungry and malnourished, the he dies. The corpse lies close to the road used by the Brahmins to go to the village well. The untouchables shun it for fear of police investigation. What can be done with the corpse of an untouchable that no one will touch?

Late in the evening, when no one looking, Brahmin ties a noose around its ankle, slides it out of the city limits and sprinkles holy water on the spot on the road to cleanse it of the untouchable’s touch. (taken from http://www.satyajitray.org/films/sadgati.htm)
